About KeePass

KeePass is an open-source password management tool that enables businesses to store passwords in an encrypted database accessible via a single master key. It comes with a key file module, which allows users to set passwords in file formats and use them as a replacement or in addition to master passwords. KeePass lets administrators sort or arrange passwords into groups/subgroups and modify them at a later date. It enables users to export/import password lists across various file formats including TXT, CSV and HTML. With its time fields functionality, users can keep track of passwords’ creation, last modification, last access and expiration. The tool lets businesses generate random passwords based on pre-defined output characters, facilitating data security. ...

If you're tech savvy, this is the password manager for you

Pros

Quick to install and use. It has lots of plugins and features, covering all the scenarios I need. I especially like the fact that you can store your password archive pretty much everywhere and aren't stuck with a cloud provider or a specific vendor.

Cons

The GUI is a bit 1990, but all in all it works fine and you don't really need anything fancy to manage your passwords

Reasons for choosing KeePass

Because it's an open source project.

Reasons for switching to KeePass

Because I wanted a password manager that allowed me to store the archive wherever I want.

Great credentials manager!

Pretty content with the features it provides, it serves as our main credentials manager for the IT department, will keep using it.

Pros

1- Totally free. 2- Incredible number of supported plugins and extensions. 3- DB file (.kdbx) is compatible with third-party apps which runs on mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. 4- Easy searching and sorting. 5- Could export to TXT, HTML, XML, and CSV.

Cons

1- Can't centrally manage all user files. 2- GUI somehow looks outdated. 3- Can't auto-save passwords.

Reasons for choosing KeePass

We support open source, and KeePass is a perfect example to free open source ware.

Reasons for switching to KeePass

Because LastPass charges for password sharing, on the other hand, KeePass is free.

Free Open Source Password Manager that does require some work from the user

KeePass was the first password vault program I used when I finally decided to start taking internet password security seriously. Its core feature is that it will help you organize and securely store passwords, and it does do with well. Ultimately I left it because I need to access my passwords on multiple devices, and while this can be done with the use of any number of cloud storage solutions, it is completely seamless and I would occasionally have to clean up double entries caused by KeePass own version control system (it good that this exists, I prefer extra entries to missing ones). At the end of the day I found myself willing to pay to have a password vault with more features and dedicated support, but I still would not hesitate to recommend this as a option to anyone looking for free password vault software.

Pros

Being open source means you can find out exactly what the program is doing with your important login information. Also if you have the correct knowledge you can attempt to add any features you feel are lacking. Completely free, and once you've downloaded it you have complete control over your data.

Cons

Very simple, auto of the box KeePass lets you create and access a encrypted password database files. Additional functionality such as cloud storage and browser autofilling will need to be worked out by the user with 3rd party applications, services, and plugins. Though some people may consider this a pro.

One Password for Everything

The number of login accounts to keep track of continues to grow, especially in a business setting. Each customer or supplier has their own page to interact with their systems. Having one central location for individual credentials is critical. It is much better than some systems of physical sticky notes or openly accessible text files.

Pros

The file-based storage format of KeePass was the most appealing feature. My information is not stored in some unknown location in the cloud and I have complete control over where it is. I can choose the cloud storage location that I want to have my passwords accessible anywhere. There are applications for desktop and mobile that can use the same file format. Syncing between file locations is painless.

Cons

There haven't been any issues with this software so far.

Reasons for choosing KeePass

Looking for a non-cloud application to store passwords but would still allow the storage of the password file (in encrypted form) in a cloud environment.
